Hi!
I am pretty new around here and just wanted to share my first wearable project..

Here is a pair of Wrap Pants that I made about 2 weeks ago... I used the general idea from this pattern... but I made them longer and made the way it ties different... (I hate following patterns)

(sorry about the smudge in the mirror Roll Eyes)

Those are great! THe fabric is very pretty and they look very comfy but stylish, like you could wear them to the beach then to dinner. How are they in the wind? I've heard that these pants fly open when it gets windy! Shocked I have wanted to make a pair for a while. Thanks for the pattern!

lol...

yeah... the wind may blow them open a bit... but I made them wrap more around the back on the under layer so that really it doesn't cause much of a problem...

They are THE most comfy pants that I have ever owned... I can't wait to get some more fabric and make more...

I love the fabric. It looks like something my sister would do yoga in.
Am I having an attack of stupid or something? I really want to make these but I can't find the pattern that you mention.
